Twitter Censors Gun Researcher John Lott’s Account

Published

Big Tech strikes again.

Twitter recently suspended gun rights researcher John Lott over a tweet about the perpetrator of the New Zealand Mosque massacre.

Lott is the president of the Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) and is the most influential pro-Second Amendment scholar in contemporary times.

His work in More Guns, Less Crime exposed the failure of federal and state level gun control in preventing crime. This book laid the basis for future research demonstrating the effectiveness of expanded gun rights in combating crime.

Such research has garnered significant pushback from the legacy media and other establishment institutions.  Big Tech made sure to put the clamps on John Lott’s message last week.

As Lott logged onto Twitter, he received a message from Twitter alleging that one of his Tweets violated the company’s rules. Curiously enough, the social media platform did not make clear how the tweet in question actually violated Twitter’s terms of service.

The tweet that Twitter singled out was from March 15, 2019. There are still questions about whether the tweet was flagged manually or by machine learning. This incident comes on the heels of recent deplatforming campaigns of right-wing figures and Google’s recent dust-up with Project Veritas where the tech giant was exposed for its attempts to use its algorithm to favor left-wing presidential candidates. Given this tweet’s four-month age, it appears that this tweet was flagged manually.

For Lott to be able to post again, Twitter demands that Lott delete this tweet. Lott told AmmoLand in a report that removing the Tweet is out of the question. Instead, Lott is asking all of his followers to retweet the screenshots that the CPRC shared on its feed and tweet at Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey, and Twitter Support.

In a statement, Twitter rationalized this action by indirectly suggesting that Lott’s post “glorifies” violence on Twitter. The statement read:

We don’t comment on individual accounts for privacy and security reasons, but for background, it’s against our policies to share content that glorifies violence on Twitter, including directly linking to that information. Additionally, we enforce the Twitter Rules impartially for all users, regardless of their background or political affiliation.

Lott’s account is still locked even though readers can still see screenshots of the tweet on the CPRC’s Twitter feed.

Big Tech is no longer playing games. They started with the Dissident Right, but now conventional right-wingers will likely be on the chopping block as social media escalates its campaign against the Right with the 2020 election quickly approaching.

Why is Justin Amash Endorsing Social Engineering?

Published

on

On February 13, 2020, Michigan Congressman Justin Amash endorsed the idea of establishing an Equal Rights Amendment.

Under the ERA, the government would allegedly guarantee equal legal rights for all Americans regardless of their sex.

Amash tweeted, “Equality before the law is fundamental to the Rule of Law and foundational to liberty. The Constitution exists to protect our liberty, so I have long advocated including a federal equal protection clause in the Constitution.”

He added, “Drafting a new nondiscrimination amendment would allow us to enshrine our modern understanding of equal protection as preventing all arbitrary discrimination by government, and it would allow states to consider the proposal without being under a constitutionally dubious deadline.”

Amash’s support for the ERA is indicative of the leftward lurch he taken as evidenced by supporting the impeachment of President Donald Trump and voting for legislation that would have funded transgender surgeries for members of the military.

The ERA is one of the biggest pet projects of the cultural Left.

They were able to score major victories by establishing forced integration, the 1965 Immigration Act, and affirmative action throughout the 1960s.

However, they did fail trying to ratify the ERA during the 1970s. But that has not stopped in recent times.

Now the Left has a new ally in Amash, who used to be a solid libertarian conservative.

Ratifying the ERA will only consolidate the managerial state’s hold over the private affairs of Americans and usher in more social radicalism via public administration.

Given Amash’s liberty background, he should think twice before endorsing the ERA.
